NTK.365: #0014 – Introducing Whiteboard




#0014 –  Introducing Whiteboard



Web App and Teams Meetings:  Whiteboard enabled





Rolling out now, to be completed by mid to late August

Users can create and collaborate on whiteboards in the web application and in Teams meetings.  Whiteboard files are stored in the OneDrive for Business of the person who starts the whiteboard.  A file folder labeled Whiteboard is automatically created.        

During a Teams meeting, you can begin a Whiteboard session with meeting participants using the “Share content” button:

Whiteboards can also be used pre- and post- meeting through the Tab associated with the meetings:

There are a few caveats specific to Whiteboard in our Government (GCC) environment:  

  • Access to Whiteboards is limited to our State of Delaware organization/tenant, but does include Guest accounts that are in our tenant. 
  • This rollout does not include enabling the native Whiteboard applications for Windows 10, Surface Hub, or iOS for GCC. 
  • If you have a Surface Hub, the Whiteboard application will continue to operate in a local-only mode and cannot collaborate with the service. 


(NOTE:  While an Office365 app icon for Whiteboard is not currently a part of this rollout, you can access and create new whiteboards on the web by visiting
